Verona is a total of 6.36 square miles, which includes the Verona Sugar River Valley, the Badger Mill Creek, and the Sugar River State Trail. Tucked just south of US 18/151 is the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, which traces the grooves and edges left by 15,000-year-old glaciers from Wisconsin’s Ice Age.
According to the City of Verona’s website, settlement of Verona revolved around the construction of Badger Mill, “the first grist mill in the county finished in 1844. A few years later the mill was sold to a man named Samuel Taylor who expanded the mill to include a store and a post office and soon after other businesses opened in the area.” Since then, Verona has been a bustling community in the Madison area.
Verona presents as a slight sellers’ market, which means that there are more people looking to buy homes than there are homes available to buy. Homes stay on the market a median of 81 days, and the median list price was $414.9K as of April 2020.
